BG19 – Fear of a Transhuman Future : Zombies and Resident Evil

Futurismic have my nineteenth Blasphemous Geometries column.

It deals partly with the Resident Evil games but mostly with the evolution of the zombie genre.  Originally, I was planning a much more expansive piece that also took in the games Dead Space and Prototype Рas they also have a rather reactionary attitude towards the shifting conceptions of identity found in transhumanism  Рbut I decided instead to focus my analysis a bit more.
